Is Jacob Stearne a terrorist or a hero?

All Jacob wanted was a romantic weekend in Paris with his girlfriend. But when he spots terrorists bent on attacking a crowded church, he flies into action. The victims mistake him for one of the extremists causing the authorities to give him a choice: go undercover to expose neo-Nazis fanatics — or jail.

“Jacob and his sidekick, Mercury are two of the best characters ever created” — Secret World Book Club

Jacob infiltrates an international conference for violent radicals in rural Spain. Far from home and cut off from his support team, he must navigate the dangerous waters alone. In the shadowy leadership of the fringe group, he learns no one is who they seem. And trusting the wrong person for even a second could be fatal.

“Seeley James’s writing swings from downright funny to rollercoaster thrills and unpredictable twists. The shocking plot will keep you reading all night and worried about the real world afterwards. The best read of the year” — Krueger Reads

The sinister plot Jacob uncovers is far worse than anyone imagined. It threatens the lives of thousands and may explode into global chaos. He must trust someone to get word to law enforcement but a chess game of lies and deception undermines his credibility. How can he outsmart the malicious conspirators before the world erupts into war?

The Geneva Decision [Origins 1]

Before the bestselling Sabel Security series, Pia Sabel took over dad’s company. Ever wonder how that happened? Sabel Origins #1 chronicles Pia’s foray into the business.

Until a few weeks ago, Pia Sabel was an international soccer star. But now she’s taken the helm of her billionaire father’s private security company, and she’s playing against a whole new set of opponents – the kind who shoot to kill.

On her first day on the job, Pia’s client is assassinated in front of her. There’s no time for training, so Pia must trust her instincts and athletic skills to unravel the complicated maze of money laundering and piracy that will take her from Swiss mansions to the jungles of Cameroon.

Her battle-hardened employees suspect she’s just a spoiled rich girl with a mean corner kick. But Pia’s got some unexpected moves of her own. Will they be enough to bring her team through its mission?

Bring It [Origins 2]

Before the bestselling Sabel Security series featuring Jacob Stearne and Mercury, Pia Sabel took over the company and ran into trouble. Sabel Origins #2, Bring It, chronicles that time Jacob, still on his meds, was tasked with saving the boss.

When Pia Sabel is abducted after trying to bust a ring of deviant criminals, it’s up to veteran agent Jacob Stearne to navigate the dark web of deceit and lies to save her from her torturous captors.

Pia Sabel expected a little recognition after she liberated a pedophile resort in Sri Lanka, not a State Department inquisition. Forced to play the deadliest game of her life, she finds molested children used in a new version of “enhanced interrogation tactics”. Putting herself in danger to save the innocent, her overconfidence leads to agonizing torment.

Sabel Agent Jacob Stearne and his team of decorated veterans have lived through warzone horrors but nothing could have prepared them for the ugly reality they uncover. Fending off accusations of treason and terrorism, Jacob unravels a network of ambitious appointees and black-budget contractors to discover who is responsible for some of the most horrific crimes against humanity.

Athlete Pia Sabel intended to put her fortune to use helping educate isolated children. When corrupt officials force her to flee, she remains haunted by the sight of dead and dying villagers.

All the clues point to someone at the symposium his boss will attend.

Before she realizes the size of the hornet’s nest she kicked over, she’s ducking mercenaries and assassins. Can Jacob and Pia clean up international corruption or will they be the next to die?
